Overview
When fun-loving glamour girl Quintessa Beaumont learns the Navy has established the WAVES program for women, she enlists, determined to throw off her frivolous ways and contribute to the war effort. No-nonsense and hoping to make admiral, Lt. Dan Avery has been using his skills to fight German U-boats. The last thing he wants to see on his radar is a girl like Tess. For her part, Tess works hard to prove her worth in the Anti-Submarine Warfare Unit in Boston--both to her commanding officers and to the man with whom she is smitten. When Dan is assigned to a new escort carrier at the peak of the Battle of the Atlantic, he's torn between his lifelong career goals and his desire to help Tess root out a possible spy on shore. The Germans put up quite a fight, but he wages a deeper battle within his heart. Could Tess be the one for him?
With precision and pizazz, fan favorite Sarah Sundin carries readers through the rough waters of love in a time when every action might have unforeseen world-changing consequences.

Sundin (Through Waters Deep) wraps up the Waves of Freedom WWII-era trilogy with an intriguing variant on the men-at-war story: in this novel, women play significant military roles. Beautiful Quintessa Tess Beaumont joins the Womens Naval Reserve, known as WAVES, with the intention of being known as more than a pretty face. She also wants to navigate her turbulent feelings for Navy Lt. Dan Avery, whose siblings have featured in the other two novels in the trilogy. Although hes married to the navy, Dan keeps running into Tess thanks to their shared network of friends and relatives. Romantic tension between Dan and Tess mainly drives the action, but threads of espionage involving a circle of Tesss French friends braid the plot. Sundin has done her usual historical homework, with plenty of references to real people and events of the time, but not everything holds together narratively. A historical fire from 1942 does nothing to fill out the story; a crucial overheard conversation is a weak device. Sundin is an experienced novelist, but this offering uses a few too many tired WWII tropes to succeed. Agent: Rachel Kent, Books & Such Literary Management. (Mar.)
